Protecting Your Legal Rights
While institutionalized maternal preference in determining
child custody has not been in practice in our state for decades, it is still a matter
of fact that courts tend to favor mothers over fathers when making these
determinations. That's why you, as a father, need skilled representation
on your side to make sure that your parental rights are protected and
that you are given the same consideration as the children's mother
during divorce proceedings.
It may also be important for you to establish paternity, particularly if
you are not married to your children's mother, nor were you at the
time of their conception or birth. Failure to do so could mean that you
have no legal rights as a parent regarding your own children.
